GA Conference 2016 - post 11 of 13
The new GeoCapabilities website is being worked on at the moment.
It makes use of story maps to hold a number of curriculum vignettes which have been put together by teachers to show how they are using particular objects in their teaching.
Another useful session that I didn't get to as it clashed with one of mine was given by the OCR Geography team. They had made use of some interesting contexts and activities to explore the city of Liverpool, including the creation of an ESRI StoryMap.
They also used a really useful hexagon diagram which showed the use of this tool to explore the stories of housing and the idea of making connections.
More on the OCR GCSE over the next few months as the books are nearing publication….
